Jim, Here's a way to get both. I don't guarantee this will work in all cases,  
it may have to be modified. It may not work at all in 3-D graphs, where  
FullGraphics is much less cooperative.

gr = Plot[Sin[x],{x,-Pi,Pi}];
axes = Graphics[FullGraphics[gr][[1,2]]];

Labeling the tick marks on the top and right can in principle be done using the  
FrameTicks option, but it's far more trouble than it's worth.
